An Upstream Soirée

An Upstream Soirée is the premiere party to celebrate the protection, improvement and restoration of the Bronx River. Join 200+ supporters for a festive evening featuring live music, cocktails, a light buffet and silent auction. 

This year's confirmed honorees are Bronx affordable housing developer Peter Bourbeau and the champions of the successful effort to transform the Sheridan Expressway, eliminating barriers between local communities and the river: NY Senator Jeffrey Klein, NY Assemblyman Marcos Crespo, and the Southern Bronx River Watershed Alliance.

The event beings at 6:30 pm and ends at 9:00 pm.
Patron ticket holders are invited to a 6:00 pm reception to toast honorees with our signature cocktail.
